So Whats NEW ! ! !

December 2005

1) If you using CompuByte stationery (copy side by side) and A4 stationery ( A & M Spares / Impex ) on one network you must copy i-sta.ca4 in the \programs directory to i-sta.bas and than run sta.exe. If you only using compubyte stationery you must copy i-sta.com to i-sta.bas than run sta.exe ==> Please note in both cases you do this only once.

2) Now you can insert re-order levels directly from Goods Receiving and set re-order levels for sizing matrixes also - Re-order reports can be printed in the Stock programs - Also a 1st in Africa , you can set re-order levels with trigger options . Example by setting a re-order level with a value seperated by a point you can trigger an order at a certain value. Example by inserting 10.4 the system will trigger an order only when the units drop to 4 or below and the units to order would be than in this case be 6 if the level of stock drops to 4.

3) If you using the command CAT: in Report Generator to get a detail analysis of a particular catalogue you will now not get error 15 error (out of string space)

4) If you using a thermal printer, a barcode will be generated on the cash slips and depoist slips which you can use to call up these slips in re-prints or when deposits are collected. .

November 2005

1) This is a major update > Data integrity further enhanced and the CompuByte Stationery (Two sides split in middle) is now moved to custom stationery and included in the update as a file called i-sta.com. Copy this file to i-sta.bas only if you use compubyte stationery and than compile with sta.exe.

2) Now on X readings you have a list of Credit Cards / Cheques / Tokens(Vouchers). Also after the END key is pressed amount tendered is immediately displayed and you can now accept split payments on a purchase made. This interface ensures correct change handling and has state of art input integrity checking, so day end reconcilaitions are simplified.

3) If your using parameter 178 and tracking serial numbers for cellphones/computers/appliances etc you can now also view these serail numbers on doing a re-print. To check a serial number you insert # (hash) at document reprints F1 and R. You then can seach for a serial number in sales or goods receiving.

4) In the Report Generator you can now also do a command search using the CAT: command to analysis only catalogue items (Thanks to Jeep Clothing). So if you do have a catalogue entry in your stock items you can analyse sales and purchasing of these items (maching that catalogue.)

5) Also in Report Generator you can now analyse sizes according to it's original size matrix (SM:S/M/L/XL) etc. Insert a 1 at size analysis.

6) By setting parameter 184 you can disable insertion of credit card / cheques etc in the NEW interphase.

7) A common question asked is how do you link various codes to one code so that when a specific code is inserted it will call up all subsequent codes (used for hampers or when grouping a number or stock items).

In Special Parameters you insert [LK (followed by all the codes you want to link)

Example :-

You create a goup where all the Hamper codes are in :- Example group 100 will have all the codes for the hampers.

Lets assume Hamper 1 is sold at (at) R10 which has a Plu code 100-1; this hamper has soap Plu 1-1 sold (at) R2 / shampoo Plu 3-2 sold (at) R4 and bath salts as 4-2 sold (at) R8.00 total cost of all three items is R14.00

So if hamper code 100-1 is inserted it shall use all the three items and charge only R10 and not R14. To attain this you create the code 100-1 which has a description of Hamper 1 - Special Discount and in the Special Parameters field you insert [LK 1-1/3-2/4-2] /BC , The slash BC (/BC) is usually used so that it allows you to go below a specific selling margin; Now at the number of units you insert the number of hampers you have created; at the cost of the hamper you insert a zero but at selling you insert -4 (minus four). Now if the hamper is sold it will display the -4 at selling price as the first item than bring up all the hamper items linked to it to total to the hamper value of R10.

Another method can also be used, using the catalogue field, the only difference is you will have to insert H1 (or any short code you want to use) in all the codes linked to it ; so in the above example H1 will be inserted inthe catalogue field in codes 100-1 , 1-1 , 3-2 and 4-2. When you invoice at the PLU code you insert .H1 (a point than H1) to bring up all the linked codes.

8) If you using sizing matrixes you now can go to your stock package and print stock sheets (scrollable) and it will check if any size matrix is corrupted.

9) Now USB printing works accross all modules without pressing F5 key as long as the USB parameter is set and the bat file that starts the menu or i.bat program has PRN2FILE X:SPOOL in it before the last item is run.
